AHS school day begins at and ends at . Excessive tardies will result in ISS. Please ensure your son or daughter is at school and on time.
Students cannot sign out of school for lunch. Leaving for lunch is an infraction of Cherokee County Board Policy 4215 (see page 9 in your handbook). Students leaving for lunch, or family/friends bringing food from restaurants to school, violates the guidelines for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program.
Lunch is provided daily at AHS and students are welcome to bring lunch from home, but there can be no outside commercial competition to the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. Violation of this policy jeopardizes the Free and Reduced Lunch program for all students.
If students have appointments such as dentist or doctors scheduled during lunch, parents will need to come to AHS and sign their students out in person.
If you have new neighbors or know of any students who need to register at any of the Andrews Schools it is very important that they drop by and begin the registration process.
Home School Students
If you have friends or neighbors who currently home school their high school students but are considering having them attend AHS, we would love to include them in the registration process. If they have questions about AHS or would like to attend the 8th grade dinner and registration workshops, they are welcome to join us.
Free and Reduced Lunch
Free and reduced lunch forms were mailed to students' home addresses. They are also available at the Cherokee County School website.
